All you need is love

Hi Peeps I ve just done this for the last WDE using pict by Justjean

When I saw the pictures the lion and the dog reminded me of a painting 1794 by Nicolas Maréchal a nice true love story with a sad ending due to human mistake .

Robert

Great painting Robert as usual, and you got a lot of detail for the size of the piece, was this from a real photo?

Wow, Robbie. So much detail in such a small painting. Really super watercolour. Love that sleepy-looking lion. He looks really cuddly.

I'm always in awe with anyone that does watercolor! You done a wonderful job on this Robert! I love the tenderness of the lion depicted here, as well as the trusting German Shepard!

Re: All you need is love

this painting makes me really look to see if the dog's eyes are telling me it is really safe to sit beside a sleeping lion.......good job, I think the dog is smart to keep his eyes open though.....can love really tame the wild beast?
